We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The feature I find most valuable, is the reality graphical user interface.""This solution requires less management and is very easy to use.""We are using almost all of the features and we find it quite good overall.""It can be deployed in autonomous mode, and then it automatically blocks malware threats.""The product is very easy to use. Customers really appreciate that.""The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it.""The feature that I have found most valuable is that the configuration and the usage of the product are not so complicated. For people responsible for using this infrastructure for the first line of workstation monitoring, it's quite easy to use.""The dashboard is beautiful, overall easy of use, and the UBA and NBA features are valued."

"The patch management is very easy, as it can be done automatically or added to a schedule.""Provides good vulnerability assessment.""It shows us the risky sign-ins, and if a user's password has been compromised.""What I like most is the protection against phishing emails and anti-spam.""It integrates very well with all Windows workstations or other Microsoft Endpoint products. It also works quite well. So far, I have not had any issue that hasn't been sorted out. It doesn't use too many resources, so you don't have to install different things.""Its simplicity is the most valuable. It also has very good integration. We like it.""The primary advantage is that you don't need to install it. It's included in the Windows 10 delivery.""The EDR feature is most valuable."

Cons
"I think the technical support could be better.""A support center in Asia is needed.""I would like to see support for mobile protection and some additional reports included.""Could have better integration with other security applications.""The solution just needs to keep maturing and they need to keep up with the threat landscape to ensure they're protecting clients well as time passes.""Most of their times are in Greenwich Mean Time. I would like to see more local time zones.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say the usability of this product for new threats. Meaning, not everything which is new is properly seen by the product and not all the required actions are taken.""Compliance reports need to improve."

"I would like to see better integration with their other security products to give better visibility from a higher level.""The GUI is very complex and could be more user friendly.""I am not sure if I will be using this product in the future because of the price.""If they integrate with the EDR then it will benefit this solution.""The scanning is slow when it is working with incoming emails.""Its price could be better.""Its interface can be improved a little bit. We would like to have some sort of centralization. It should have something like a central server that is managing all the other clients. There are solutions from Kaspersky or ESET NOD32 that are really doing this kind of thing currently. We would like to see something similar from Microsoft.""Some integration components for Mac should be added. We use both Windows 10 desktops and Mac desktops, but presently, the Mac component is still lagging a bit behind."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It gives you a high level of protection at a very good price.""Everything is included in this one solution and the pricing is pretty competitive.""Our billing is on a quarterly basis, but they have monthly or annual billing availability.""The price should not be less than $100 which is quite reasonable for this solution because you are getting multiple components.""Its licensing is on a monthly basis.""Pricing wise, Cynet seems to be very competitive. The cost is probably lower than that offered by many of its competitors for all the functions and features it offers."

More Cynet Pricing and Cost Advice »

"If you don't purchase the advanced threat protection then there is no additional charge.""Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive.""When compared with other vendors, the pricing is very high.""We sell this product as part of Office 365 and it is not expensive.""It is within the same range as other products. It is not too expensive, and it is also not cheap. Its price can be better, but, well, it is Microsoft.""Currently, for us, Windows Defender is free with the purchase of Windows Server. Pricing is an important point for us when we are looking at the competitors of this solution. If we choose to go with another vendor, we will have to pay some license fees.""Licensing options vary. Some customers buy it as an enterprise agreement and pay yearly. Others buy it as a CSP, so they pay per month. It completely depends on the customer's needs.""We have a bundle where the price includes all Microsoft products."
